CIVIL LIBERTIES EVENT
Colleen and Carl reported from their committee; it's been decided it will be a panel, and the title will be Civil Liberties in Time of War. Date March 10 at local college. First choice - Evergreen, Second Choice PLU
Discussion - Whether our logo Alternatives to War should be used in conjunction with advertising panel since ACLU is neutral on war issue. General discussion of issue. Group determines to seek ACLU's desire in the matter and to cooperate with their wishes although group preference is to use logo. (Two people voiced their strong feelings that ACLU co-sponsorship is more important than our logo for this one event.)
Program: Presentation of Panel, consisting of ACLU rep, committee is seeking a member from Islam community, person who was or who had a family member who was interned in internment camps in WWII, black woman active in civil rights movement. After panel presentation, group will break into 10 groups, each of which will have a facilitatior. Panel will assist in determining focus for groups. Facilitators will present concerns of groups. Panelists will be encouraged to stay through this session.
NEXT ISSUE: Due to several comments during the check-in at the beginning of the meeting that the person was feeling some question about their continued involvement with the group, it was decided to do a "go-round" where people would talk about their needs from the group and whether or not those needs were being met. This is what was said:
Janie suggested that the question of the frequency of meetings be put on agenda for next Saturday.
ANNOUNCEMENTS: Peace in the Middle East, George Tomlin, UPS, Thursday, 7:00, Occupational Therapy Building. Fellowship For Reconciliation, second Sunday in February, Hillside Community Church, potluck at 6:00, meeting at 7:00. Colleen tries to set meeting about study groups. Karen signifies interest. Difficulty in getting meeting dates for all those interested in attending. Will email. Janie suggests we visit Conversation Cafe in Seattle to study their model.
Meeting adjourned. Respectfully submitted, Karen Havnaer
